Ride with Me Station
Ride with Me Station is a test in Splatoon 2's paid downloadable content, the Octo Expansion. This station is unlocked after clearing Gnarly Rails Station, Freakazoid Station, All Eyez Station, or Radio Station.
The player must clear either Gnarly Rails Station, Freakazoid Station, All Eyez Station, or Radio Station to access this test. The shortest way to access this station is to clear Radio Station or Freakazoid Station.
The player must ride on the top of car platforms, while being shot at by Sanitized Octarians, in order to reach the goal. First the player starts on a platform and has to jump on the cars to get to the other platform. There they have to ride the Ride rail and hit the Ink Switch to move the Ink Piston up and avoid getting hit by them.
Next the player has to get on the car and get to the Launchpad in the middle by jumping on to other cars. Sanitized Octotroopers, Twintacle Octotroopers, Octosnipers, and Octocommanders can be found on the cars.
The final checkpoints makes the player get on a car and avoid ink pistons. The player can hit the Propeller to move the car up and hit the ink switches to move the ink pistons down. Sanitized Octocopters spawn on the final row of ink pistons. Once the player is through, they can get to the goal.

- The title is a reference to the 2001 song Ride wit Me by Nelly and the subtitle is a reference to the game "Shotgun", used to determine who rides in the front passenger seat in cars, fitting because the mission focuses on riding floating cars.
- This station has Slime floating in the background. This is a toy made by Mattel and sold in plastic trash cans. It was introduced in February 1976.
- Freakazoid Station has Slime floating around in the background as well.
- Ride with Me Station is the only station in the Octo Expansion to use the N-ZAP '85.
- Pearl's dialogue "OPEN SAYS ME!" could be a possible attempt at saying the phrase "open sesame".
